VCE UNLOCKED: WORKING SOLO by Impro Melbourne

Touring as part of the 2023 Arts & Education Program (regional schools only)

Touring as part of the 2022 Arts & Education Program (metro & regional)

IMPROVISATION | DRAMA | CRITICAL & CREATIVE THINKING

VCE Unlocked workshops work specifically to VCE Drama Units 3 and 4, to galvanise the creative processes for students involved in working on their Ensemble and Solo tasks. 

The workshops are designed as a starting point for work on these tasks; however, with sufficient notice, workshops can be tailored to your students if they have already received a stimulus and started work.

Impro Melbourne’s teachers are passionate, highly experienced professional actors who love inspiring creativity in students. Our instructors teach at various arts institutions, including the Victorian College of the Arts, Starlight Foundation, Trash Puppets, The National Theatre, NICA, and Malthouse Theatre. 

WORKING SOLO!

VCE Drama Unit 1, 2, and 4.

This workshop focuses on creating Solo performance work, for VCE Units 1, 2, and 4. Our Impro Melbourne teacher will discuss individually with schools which key skills areas will be most beneficial to students, depending on which part of the play-making process they are at.

This workshop can be used to open up the process of creating solo work or can be tailored to specific skills required to devise work for each student’s chosen Solo Performance Exam Structure.

The workshop can be tailored to work on the following skills areas:

  • Characters: using expressive skills to create differences in physicality and voice

  • Transformation: transformation techniques to help students explore transformation of time, character and place in performance

  • Using dramatic elements and conventions: how to incorporate sound, rhythm, stillness and silence to develop an effective performance, including how to use the stage space, how to use transitions effectively and theatrically to build performance and build a narrative

The workshop is a maximum of 90 minutes, so it is ideal to focus on 2 of the key skills above for the most benefit, rather than try and cover everything.

Online Version Available for both 2022 and 2023!

Please note: Councils, Venues and Community Presenters are welcome to book through the Arts & Education program. Contact the team [email protected] to confirm the program fee.
